Beautiful. It's possibly one of the best summit views in the cascades for a day trip. Transportation and photography made possible thanks to Mark Straub. We went to the north ridge instead of traversing to avoid hard packed morning snow sans-crampons. Had a blast! Worth coming back.

Amazing views. Stayed the night in the lookout after the half-day slog through the deep, fairly loose snow. Glissaded down much of the elevation the next day and made it to the car in less than half the time. Fantastic solo experience.

We were able to drive two miles up Sibley Creek Road and the weather and snow conditions were perfect for snowshoeing. The skies were clear enough to make out the outline of Rainier 120 miles to the south!

After a failed attempt in December due to a foot of snow dumping on the mountain while we hiked, we made it up on the second attempt! The snow plow stopped before MP 8 so we had to hike 2 miles up Cascade River road road and switch backs up to the west ridge.

We had to snowshoe 9 miles/5700 ft. elevation gain to reach the top. We started the hike at 9am and got to the lookout at 6:30pm. The 360 panoramic views of 8,000 ft. peaks, Mt. Baker and the nice an warm cozy lookout made it all worth while!

Two skiers had arrived the day before. We all shared the lookout. It was a balmy 60 degrees inside with the duraflame logs we hauled up there.

I wanted to reach the summit the next morning, but the fog rolled in and we couldn't see more than 20 ft., so we headed back down.

Climbed with my buddy, Bill. Going to have to write something up on this one. Scrambled to the true summit and on the way down saw every straight male climber's dream. God bless women like that.

Text book example of a perfect hike in the North Cascades!
Don't forget to take advantage of those excellent rock scrambling opportunities on your way to the true summit!

A good daytrip or overnighter, I recommend visiting both summits.

Headed up there to help out with some general maintenance of the lookout. That was the destination so I do not think I actually summited the main "Hidden Lake Peak". I did however scramble up to the highest point there at the lookout. I love that lake!

Took my Mom up this hike for a change in scenery, as I lived in the Diablo/Ross Lake region of the North Cascades National Park for the past year and hadn't explored as much up the Cascade River Road. Hidden Lake Peaks lookout was amazing. Spectacular day with a short, but scenically varied trail. I loved reaching the upper boulder fields with the streams passing through the trail. Amazing. I'll do it again for fun someday soon!

How many times have i driven past this trailhead on the way to Cascade Pass? Nice little climb/boulder hop with the Mazamas. Lovely day with a turn in the weather lurking in the air.

Went up the winter ridge route. Steep at first, but very direct. Great views from the true summit.
